Fields: Jews Should Beware Of Palin


Guest Columnist

For the last thirty years we keep hearing that all will be well if only America were ruled by a Christian with Christian values. 

The real issue is what will America be like if we have eight “more” years of  Bush/Palin’s Christian values?
As Buddy reported last week, Fort Lauderdale lawyer Scott Rothstein and U. S. Sen. Joe Lieberman had a lunch to raise money for McCain/Palin.

Apparently  Rothstein and Lieberman and a host of Republican Jews don’t have a problem or understand that a Vice President Sarah Palin means having a hardcore anti-Semite a skin cancer away from the Presidency.
Strong language but the evidence is clear.

Consider her campaign for the Mayor of Wasilla where her slogan was “Give Wasilla its first Christian mayor.”  I am sure Hebraic GOPers insist it was a mere coincidence that her opponent’s last name was “Stein.”
She happily sat in her Wasilla Assembly of God Church this year while David Brickner, who heads the nutty “Jews For Jesus” cult, spoke.  He proclaimed that Israel’s current tribulations result from God punishing the Jews for rejecting Jesus.

Think Hamas and Hezbollah as Yahweh’s right hand. 
[Note to reader: I am an atheist. I have no dog in the God hunt, but have read The Bible as well as Das Kapital and Mein Kampf.  Know your enemy.] 
Heads up my Landsmen!

It’s worse. Unfortunately Jews–who would sooner have the rabbi sow back the tip than read the New Testament–have no clue what she means when she regularly proclaims that “Jesus will return in her lifetime”.

This is known as “End of Days” or “The Rapture”.
For fundamentalists, evangelicals and Pentecostals like her this has only one meaning:

It’s the prophecy in The Book of Revelation; the last book of the New Testament.  For the uninitiated it was written by St. John the Divine to literally and figuratively scare the hell out of Christians loosing faith because Jesus, who had promised to return in their lifetime, was late to the party. 
The Book of Revelation [or as I prefer to call it: The Original Final Solution to the Jewish Question] has Jesus coming back to Earth and he is pissed.  He starts off by murdering the  2/3 of the Jews that still reject him.

So much for Jesus Loves the Little Children .
The Book of Revelation reads like Freddie Kruger on acid and steroids.  So when you hear Sarah call herself a “hockey mom” think “Jason” with a hockey mask.

Note to Scott Rothstein:  If you think the million dollars you sent to Holy Cross Hospital will earn you a “Get Out of Hell Free” card, you are sadly mistaken. 

In the modern lexicon Catholics ain’t Christians.  I suggest you stop payment on the check and redirect it to Pat Robertson

    As the great Ronald Reagan said, “There he goes again.”
    Sam. Keep your atheistic crap to yourself for once. We hear enough of it in the courthouse.

  2. John says:

    Everyone with a functioning brain cell should be very concerned about Palin.

    She is a religious zealot, speaks in tongues, believes in witchcraft and “end times”.

    Not someone you’d want 1 heartbeat away from the most important job in the world.

  3. David Abramsky says:

    Dear Mr. Fields:

    I’m not sure who your sources were for the bit about the comments made by Jews for Jesus head, David Brickner. You reported that, “He proclaimed that Israel’s current tribulations result from God punishing the Jews for rejecting Jesus.” A read of Mr. Brickner’s ACTUAL sermon would be worthwhile. Go to:

    By just printing that one little sentence–without giving it the context it was really in–you have distorted the words (really the meaning) of someone you’re reporting about. Yes, you summed up a 30-minute sermon with just one sentence! Unfortunately this is why many people have trouble trusting what they read these days.

    I wish you had put the Brickner quote in its true context: He paints a picture of his belief that God’s love and forgiveness for all people have been offered over and over for centuries. But the world does what it wants. The results we experience are not PUNISHMENT (which is the way you portrayed it) but just that we reap what we sow.

    Once again, I was disappointed by how you portrayed the meaning of Mr. Brickner’s beliefs.

    Call it the endtime resurgence of the historical back-stabbers. Listen, evangelicals have been the best friends of Jews and Israel. If Jewish persons (who’ve prospered in “Christian” America more than in any place else) keep needlessly stabbing evangelicals as a whole, they shouldn’t be surprised if they end up with no one supporting them. Guess what. This is prophesied to happen – a prophecy not in the New Testament but in the Old Testament! Zechariah 14:2 says that G-d will “gather all nations against Jerusalem,” and Jewish ingrates, who can’t seem to distinguish evangelicalism from a few extremists on its fringe, are helping to fulfill this prophecy in multiple ways. And it isn’t the NT that speaks of two-thirds of Jews being killed in the “latter days” – it’s in the OT that many Jews seem to ignore! Before anything more is said against Israel’s best friends, Jews would do well to search their own scriptures and find out the reasons for some of their own prophecies! Shalom, Bruce

    Dear Courthouse (actual intitials JI) Dave and Bruce.

    Let’s make a deal I will go to Church with you if you will go see Bill Maher’s movie “Religilous” with me.

    Evangelicals are friends of Israel in the same way drug dealers are friends of drug addicts.

    The Protestant magical thinkers see Israel as a way to bring about Armageddon so they can spend eternity with Lawdy, Lawdy.

    You call it religion. I call it mental illness.

  6. Sam Fields says:

    Poor Mr. Abramsky. He figures that if he joins Jews for Jesus he’s got a better shot at the shiksa cheerleaders that ignored him in high school.

  7. Matt Sieger says:

    I would like to echo David Abramsky’s comments. Most blogs and news services have quoted the same one paragraph of the six-page transcript of the message that David Brickner of Jews for Jesus delivered at Sarah Palin’s church, giving the false impression that he is saying that a bulldozer attack by a deranged Palestinian is God’s judgment on the Jewish people. Please read or listen to the entire message for yourself at so that you can hear Brickner’s remarks in context. Please also take a look at Brickner’s comments concerning his message at Wasilla Bible Church, as well as interviews by Christianity Today and MSNBC with Brickner about this issue, at Among other things, Brickner says, “The comments attributed to me were taken out of context. The notion that the terrorist, bulldozer attack in Jerusalem this summer was God’s judgment on Israel for not believing in Jesus, is absolutely not what I believe. In retrospect, I can see how my rhetoric might be misunderstood and I truly regret that . . . . Let me be clear. I don’t believe that any one event whether a terrorist attack or a natural disaster is a specific fulfillment of or manifestation of a Biblical prediction of judgment. I don’t believe that the newspaper should be used to interpret the Bible. The Bible interprets the Bible. I love my Jewish people and the land of Israel. I stand with and support her against all efforts to harm her or her people in any way.”

    Barack Obama is bad for Jews because he is bad for America and its democratic traditions. I read the Brickner piece in and Mr. Fields has taken one sentence out of a fairly dense and incoherent speech out of context. Let’s look at the true anti-semites around Obama. Barack Obama was/is a twenty year member of a black liberation theology church led by Reverend Wright who stated that “America’s chickens have come home to roost,” in justifying the 9-11 attacks by Bin Laden. One reason stated by Wright was our support for Israel. This is the man who Obama says brought him to his faith. This theology is highly Marxist and grievance oriented. Obama only “left” the church after Wright slammed him personally by claiming that he was distancing himself from the statements for political expediency. Antisemite Farrakhan has endorsed Obama along with an advisor for the Hamas Prime Minister. I have the tape of that endorsement. Barack Obama attended the Million Man March, which was led by that great friend of Jews and Americans, Farrakhan. Everywhere you look if there is a problem you find allies of Barack Obama involved. Look at voter fraud there is ACORN which Obama is associated with. Look at the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac debacles you have Franklin Raines and James Johnson, who are close to Obama and are largely responsible for the financial chicanery and scandals which have led to the wall Street meltdown and the government bailout which will cost trillions. In terms of national security, you have his association with Bill Ayres who was a terrorist and feels that his acts of terrorism was justified. Due to the voter fraud, I wonder whether Hillary Clinton actually lost the race.

  9. Marty Rubinstein says:

    So, Sam…

    Jews should be happy with Obama whose friends are some of the worst ant-semites ever? Jerermiah Wright, Louis Farakahn and his very special friend Jesse Hymietown) Jackson who’s going around Europe telling everybody when Obama’s president, Jewish interests will no longer influence the US government.

    Real friends of Jews. Stop making excuses like all the others. It’s not a perfect world, but get real.

    Jewish guilt knows no bounds. Spare me!

    Never Again!

  10. Sam Fields says:

    Obama has a 100% AIPAC voting record. Being from Chicago he could vote twice and have a 110% record.

    People who suggest that End Time Protestants are a fringe group probably do not even know about the “Left Behind” books. It is a fictionized version of the The Book of Revelation. Up front the Jews get their comeuppance for rejecting Jesus. And it ain’t exactly probation.

    So far sales exceed 60 million books plus movies and DVDs. That’s a pretty big fringe

    There is no evidence that Obama endorses the views of Farakahn, etc. anymore than McCain endorses the views of G. Gordon Liddy who held a fundraiser for him. Among Liddy’s views is that if an ATF agent comes to your door respond with a “headshot” because he is probably wearing kevlar. I guess McCain backs killing cops???

    Marty and his type remind me of the estimated 3000 Berlin Jews who were so anti Communist they voted for Hitler. I guess they did not bother to read or believe “Mein Kampf”

    Is there a difference between Hitler and the Evangelicals. Absolutely.

    Hitler hated the Jews. Evangelicals love us…to death.

    We don’t need another Prez or Veep that thinks and hopes the end of the world is near and that End Times will be swell times.

  11. Marty Rubinstein says:

    Nonsense, Sam.

    I’ve seen too many Jews in South Florida sell themselves out for a Bagel. Sell themselves out to people who shake their hands and feed them bagels in the morning and then bad mouth them later in the day.

    The community leaders who push the bagel / badmouthing candidates remind me of the KAPOS (the sellout Jews) who herded their fellow Jews into the cattle cars headed to the death camps.

    And what is Debbie Wasserman Schultz suggesting in today’s paper?

    Obama needs to come down to Broward and feed bagels (to the Jews who don’t trust him.)

    Have a free bagel, Sam.

  12. Marty Rubinstein says:

    And, no, Sam…

    I support neither Obama nor McCain. I refuse to support a candidate “just because,” in this case the evil of two lessers.

    I spent time with Joe Biden during the Kerry campaign and so I voted for Joe in the primary. But he hasn’t impressed me as the VP candidate. Four years ago, he was bright, intelligent and right on the beam. This year’s model reminds me more of Dan Quayle than the Joe of old. He’s gone senile.

    Patriotic to pay higher taxes? Adams and Jefferson are spinning so fast in their graves they’re generating enough power to light Atlanta.

    Spread the wealth? Lenin must be smiling in his tomb.

    Even “Honest Abe” who everybody just loves to remind me that he was a one term congressman, is rolling over in his grave at the mere thought of a possible successor who has close friends who want to do to this country what he fought against throughout his Presidency and gave his life for.

    Give me a candidate I can support. There isn’t one on the ballot this November.

  13. Sam Fields says:

    Poor Marty, the self loathing Jew. He buys into the anti-Semetic canard that condo Jews are dumb lummoxes that sell their vote for a bagel.

    The average condo resident is better educated then the average American of equal age.

    If you ever spent an afternoon at Century Village or any other Broward or Palm Beach condo you would meet well read people with there own opionions that they would gladly share with you…even if you don’t want to hear them.

    It is the religious fundementalists (Christian/Jew/Muslim) that are the voting automatons.

  14. Marty Rubinstein says:

    Tsk, Tsk.

    Sam, the self proclaimed Atheist has the audacity to point out exactly WHO is a self loathing Jew?

    C’mon Sam…

    And yes, I’ve been to Century Village and other condos where the question on Election Day is “Who should I vote for?”

    And by the way, no matter who wins on the 4th, I win.

    Both tout guaranteed access to health care, something I can’t get now at any price other than paying the freight at delivery time. The good news is that so far, I’ve been very good at negotiating the freight.

  15. Sam Fields says:

    Marty I would agree with you. It is a sad commentary about someone who would seek your opinion

  16. natrayger says:

    Barack Obama voted against designating the Iranian Republican Guard as a terrorist group. Obama responded to an audience members question by proclaiming he would meet with Ahmedinejad without any preconditions. Google Obama, Rashid Khalidi and wake up. Check out the LA Times story.

  17. Marty Rubinstein says:


    In the Marxist view (Groucho, not Karl) I agree with you.
